Will be portraying President Obama and the late Rev Clementa Pinckney.
Happy to announce that I will be portraying President Obama and the late Rev Clementa Pinckney in a powerful and stirring new play about the Mother Emmanuel Church massacre in Charleston, SC at the Freedom Theater in Philadelphia. We go into rehearsals in a couple of weeks. This play will have significant meaning for me because of my ties to the AME Church having been it's Richard Allen for several years. If you don't know or haven't known, the Freedom Theater has revived itself as an activist theater company fostering and promoting social justice. Look forward to seeing many of you there. Shows open in April.
Stay tuned for more info.
